Last American soldiers went from Iraq on Sunday. The war started in March 2003. A lot of people in Europe and in the world didn’t want this war, but the USA didn’t listen and started the war. 4500 American soldiers died in the war. 100 000 Iraqi people died in the war.

The USA started the war because Saddam Hussein had dangerous weapons. It wasn’t true. Saddam Hussein didn’t have dangerous weapons. Saddam Hussein was killed in 2006. The war was very expensive. It was 3 000 000 000 000 US dollars.
